spending and our defense spending and we need to make these expressions of our priorities around our future. some of that will require additions, some of that will require subtractions. these are the things we need to do to have a balanced approach. this is the choice that this congress should have. an approach that invests in our future and changes the fundamental trajectory of our entitlement programs while taking care of those most vulnerable. that to me is a balanced approach. i'm proud to be a democrat. i'm proud to be a democrat because of our historical fight for those left behind and because of our view that we have to invest in our future. i would like my party to lead on fundamental reform to these entitlement programs and do it now so we don't have to affect current beneficiaries or people who are close to being beneficiaries and i want to take those savings with additional tax revenues and invest it in r future, invest it in our children, invest it in making this country more competitive so that we can create jobs and have a good standard of living. thank you, mr. speaker. the c

single out the defense measures in this budget and to applaud, again, the leadership of the chairman on the budget committee for protecting our military, for giving it funding it otherwise would not have and the flexibility it needs to help protect and keep this country safe. the defense department is the one area in government where strategy should drive the budget, not the budget driving the strategy. and in the second way that it protects our military from a debt crisis, this budget as we've heard is designed to postpone and prevent a debt crisis caused by out of control reckless spending, anemic economic growth of the kind you've seen in countries in europe already. if that were to happen, not only would it impact families all across the country, when their interest rates for mortgages and farms and small piss and education increases, but it also crowd out all other kinds of priorities in our federal budget, it would immediately impact as well our troops, their families, and our veterans. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back his time. the gentl
